Caramel Apple Spice Recipe

Caramel Apple Spice

Tree Top premium apple juice
Cinnamon syrup (recipe below)
Whipped cream
Caramel sauce (see below)

1. Add 2 tsp of cinnamon syrup to 8 oz apple juice. Stir, heat in microwave.
2. Squirt a healthy portion of whipped cream on top
3. Drizzle caramel sauce all over whipped cream.
4. Sell at a markup of at least 600%. Retire rich.

Cinnamon Syrup

Boil 1/2 cup sugar in 1/2 cup water over med-high heat until dissolved. Add 1 Tbsp cinnamon (Saigon or Vietnamese cinnamon works best for the cider).

Caramel Sauce

Caramel sauce is incredibly easy for how delicious and versatile it is. Any amount of sugar, a touch of corn syrup, and enough water to make it wet. Heat on high just until you see a wisp of smoke and then add some cream. However, this process scares a lot of people and is rarely cooked properly by neophytes. So instead of posting a recipe, I must refer you to Alton Brown's excellent video tutorial on caramel sauce. However, you don't need a candy thermometer. Just look for the first wisp of smoke and then add the cream.
